Door Closer Repair Service

You know it doesn't take long for your business to make a first impression. It happens the moment a customer walks through the door, so it's a good idea to make sure your door works properly. Manual door closer repair and maintenance services from Glass Doctor® of Fort Collins ensure that your first impression will always be a good one. We are committed to the safety of commercial doors and door closers throughout the Fort Collins area.

How Door Closers Work

Manual door closers have a simple job to do: allowing individuals open a door easily without having to physically close it again. When a door closer is installed properly, the user will feel just enough resistance while opening the door to get a sense of its weight. The initial resistance causes the door to glide smoothly open, and then a spring in the door closer triggers the mechanism’s arm to gently close the door.

Door Closer Repair

Incorrect Types of Door Closers

A door with the wrong type of closer is a problem we commonly see, and it can pose a serious safety risk, not to mention causing misalignments and damage to the closer or to the door itself. If you have a heavy door in your establishment, it requires a strong door closer with durable springs.

Improperly Installed and Adjusted Door Closers

Each time the specialists at Glass Doctor of Fort Collins install a door closer, we use the right tools to make sure it is installed safely and securely. We also offer door closer repair and maintenance to maximize your door closer's lifespan and ensure years of reliable use. Door closer installation, maintenance and spring adjustments should only be carried out by a trained professional to prevent:

  • Doorframe damage
  • Unusual movements of the door
  • Misalignments

Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels

When a door closer suffers a broken seal, it exposes gaps that may cause lubricant leaks and leave hardware vulnerable to rust and corrosion. Oil leaks and lack of lubrication often mean that there is a mechanical problem with the door closer, like a missing screw, broken O-ring or failed seal. Contact Glass Doctor of Fort Collins today, and allow our experts to address these problems to avoid potential injury and door damage.

Door is Difficult to Lock

Our team also repairs doors that are difficult to lock. Doors that do not lock correctly pose a security risk, and may lead to problems with the door closer, doorframe or locking mechanism.
